City Inside/Out: Marijuana Lounges

POLL: Do you support marijuana lounges?

Recreational marijuana is legal in Washington state, but it's illegal to use it publicly. Advocates are now asking our state Legislature to let cities legalize "consumption lounges" where patrons could use pot socially without breaking the law. A plus for pot tourism or a public safety hazard? Should pot parlors go to a public vote? Both sides weigh in.
